Suresh Neelapala

Vital Stats:
Name: Suresh Neelapala, a.k.a "Anna"
Role:    President, Right slow medium, Top order Bat,
Pedigree: Andhra Univ Eng College team
Fav Stroke: Over the covers
Weapon: Normal delivery that surprises you with bounce.

The Serious part:
A Dashing opener, and an instinctive hitter of the ball. On his day, he is a very good entertainer and fun to watch. A very useful bowler in the middle of the innings and can be very handy in getting crucial wickets. Bowls wicket-to-wicket and very deceptive with his pace. Now to the most important part of his game, his fielding. He is very agile and judges the ball coming towards him very quickly. An excellent fielder and fittingly won the award for the "Best Fielder award for the past two years.

The LOL:He plays a 40-over game like a 20-20. I wonder what approach he would take when he bats in a 20-20 match. He might be one of the senior (older:)) players in the team, but with his fielding abilities, he can be as agile and fit as the youngest member of the team. He is also the teams official photographer!!!!
